August 9 2009: A Bulgarian Concert

Winding down our trip, but still a full agenda! On this day, we went to visit Desi’s aunt again, and got to see her cousin Krisi who wasn’t there on our first visit. It was great to share the stories of our trip across Europe with everyone!

We then went out to shop for souvenirs, to the internet cafĂ©, and I think I decided to call my grandparents during the day at some point – just to say hi. I think I tried to get ahold of a few people, but some weren’t home. Desi did the same, but only got ahold of Geri to say goodbye.Before we knew it much of the day had passed and we were on our way to a concert!

Nasi had told us about this concert and asked if we wanted to go, which we certainly did. The concert I can only really describe as an orchestral rock variety hour. So much fun!

The concert was very well done, and had little skits in between the musical performances. The musical performances were great and fully orchestrated with performers and musicians. Definitely one of the most interesting concerts I had ever been to. Desi even translated some of the lyrics for me. 🙂

Here’s the crew that went to the concert! The unfamiliar faces are Mitko and Mariela, good friends of Nasi and Nasko (Nasko’s taking the photo – great job!):

We had a great time, and after the concert Desi bought some freshly fried mini doughnuts to try – and they were delicious. Nasi and Nasko were kind enough to drive us there and back, and we would see Nasi again on the next day – our final day of adventure. 🙂

    Hi Don and Desi

    A bulgarian concert…what an experience to see this kind of entertainment. It appears by the photo’s that everyone had an excellent evening.

    My favorite photo is the one of the group of you after the concert. Also love that photo of the little kitten.

    Love Mom and Walter
